Why Dragster Engines Only Last 4 seconds

Top fuel dragsters are the most powerful cars built today. One Top Fuel dragster's 500-cubic-inch Hemi engine makes more horsepower than the first four rows at the Daytona 500. It is said that drivers experience more G's than an astronaut headed to space. They have spark plugs that are strong enough to weld metal. Their flame front's measure in temperatures up to 7000 degree's. Assuming that all of the equipment is paid off, the crew works gratis, and nothing breaks, each run costs an estimated $1000 per second and that crazy cost is because a dragster engine needs to be rebuilt EVERY RUN.

  • Both images are hemispherical head design. When ever the spark plug is top dead center and the valves are on either side, its a hemispherical design. When the spark plug is off to the side, that is a non hemispherical head. The whole idea behind the hemispherical head is the spark plug is top, dead center. The flame front then comes straight down on center of the piston. Which allows much more advanced timing and smoother, more power out of the engine.

  • “Your average car can last over 3,000 hrs of run time.” At an average speed of 35 mph, that equates to only 105,000 miles. An average of 50 mph equates to 150,000 miles. Obviously it depends on how fast you drive, but both those figure seem very low to me!

  • The motors in dragsters use a centrally mounted camshaft , which use roller lifters, push rod and rocker arms to actuate the valves. Your animation shows a Double Over Head Cam (DOHC) set up which would indicate four camshafts, two cams per cylinder bank. Just though you should know.
